Wish I knew what the hell my cat was, lol. Well what if I just went normal steel, not stainless.

So like a 2.5 Lukey, extrators, resinator?

you also have to take into account New mufflers. Mine just goes Extracots - Hi-flow cat - Single middle hi flow muffler - straight through pipe (no resi)

sounds mean. but only sounds "too loud" when u give it the foot

you will also find that it sounds alot more smooter with the extracors. you can actully here the engine breathing. You can feel it too. revs get up alot quiker, n just gives you the feeling its breathing alot healthier. just make sure you dont go short on the extracots. Get a good brand e.g Pacemaker - Hi-tech (i prefer Hi-tech)

south- the cat back section of the exhaust will die sooner than the extractors even if they are put on at the same time. The moisture in the air tends to condense before it makes it to the extractors. so you could do them at different times

So that means I could get a 2.5 Lukey with resinator for like $300 installed then?

Just trying to help you out here, before you do the mods, ring up afew insurance companies to get yourself a rough idea of what it will cost with the mods. Have you got a company in mind? If you wanna know anything about what I pay for insurance, give us a PM, im on my red p's too, got a modded falcon, and full comprehensive.
